  10. Does canvas when digital painting count? ;)

    As for traditional surfaces, I really like Strathmore's Cold pressed watercolor paper. Even if I'm not using watercolors, I like the feel of the toothed surface! :)

  11. I'm still experimenting, but I've gotten great results using brown kraft paper (the kind you use to wrap packages for mailing). Otherwise, I like smooth illustration board.

  12. I am in love with Stonehenge 100% Cotton paper .... and so are my colored pencils!

  13. Canson drawing paper. Have to be honest. Haven't really tried anything else. Just accidently bought it once and never stop. I love it because I can use all sorts of mediums on it from watercolor to regular pencils and everything works really good on it.

  14. Canson drawing paper (90lb Dessins JA) for the majority of my work.

  17. I love Stonehenge the best. Strathmore Bristol Vellum is my second choice and thirdly I will use watercolor paper, 140lb, but it eats the pencils faster.

  19. I think stonehenge paper, also Canson Mix Media Paper (THE BEST!!!!!!!)

  20. I like drawing on Canson paper. No matter if paper is invoiced or smooth. It's great producer :) But paper always has to have big density.

  30. I am an elementary school teacher, so my paper choices are limited, and I don't really know any fancy brand names like the rest of you, so I'm just going to go with this: I like using colored pencils on nice, white paper! :-)

  31. I am entering for my 7 year old son. He recently found a book about how to draw Marvel Comics. He has since locked himself in his room and has been drawing away on my white copy paper.

    We took a look at these drawings today and realized he has some amazing talent. We got him a drawing tablet so he has some better paper to do his work on. I promised him some colored pencils when we get some money.

    I am so proud of his work and thought a better writing paper tablet and some great pencils would be the best summer present around!

  32. As a teacher of 30 2nd graders I love to draw on any paper I can get my hands on! I love using colored pencils in my classroom. My students are able to draw detailed pictures that are amazing! I would love a set of your pencils!!!

  33. I love nice card stock paper of any kind. I love the colored pencil display it will make writing and drawing even more enticing.

  34. I am also a second grade teacher. I agree that we use colored pencils on any paper available. I really like the color choices in this set. Second graders (and their teachers) love to color.
